'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' news: Director Zack Snyder comments on DC vs Marvel; Gal Gadot reveals Wonder Woman 'not there for love story'


Two weeks from now, two of the most iconic DC superheroes Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) will go head to head in what would be the official debut of the DC Expanded Universe. Likewise, two more iconic comic book characters are squaring off over at the Marvel side in “Captain America: Civil War.” Snyder was asked on his thoughts about the brewing DC vs. Marvel match up in his recent interview with Film Ink.

“I’m a comic book fan, so it’s a hard thing for me. I have a great interest in the movies that they’re making, and I have nothing bad to say about those movies,” Snyder started. However, he revealed that the main difference is that, Warner, who is the partner of DC, is keener on giving directors and producers the space to operate based on their vision.

Aside from Bat from Gotham and God from Krypton, the third pillar of DC’s Trinity and arguably the most known female superhero, Wonder Woman will also splash into the movie scene with the upcoming flick. While it is still uncertain how big the Amazon princess’ role in the movie is, Snyder was gushing on the character which will be played by Gal Gadot.

“It’s an amazing opportunity to have Wonder Woman in the film. We haven’t had a female superhero of that magnitude, and it’s an amazing opportunity for the world to get behind an amazing, powerful female character.”

Meanwhile, one thing is clear with Wonder Woman, she is not there for any romantic purposes. In Gadot’s recent interview with Glamour magazine, she revealed that while her character is very compassionate and loving, she is also very independent.

“For ‘BvS’ it was important for me that we show how independent she is. She is not relying on a man, and she’s not there because of a love story. She’s not there to serve someone else. She has so many strengths and powers, but at the end of the day she’s a woman with a lot of emotional intelligence. She’s loving.”
